COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlenkerla Smokebeer Wheat is an ale with light smoky aroma. As Bavarian wheat beers, it is being brewed with a mixture of both barley malt and wheat malt. The portion of barley malt is hereby a classic Schlenkerla smokemalt, while the wheat malt remains unsmoked. Served unfiltered with its natural haziness, Schlenkerla Wheat reaches its full aroma through bottle fermentation with fine top fermenting yeast.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 30, 2007
THOUGHTS: A little less smokey aroma than their Urbock, but more smokey in the flavor than it. I wont have this often, but I probably will have at least the Urbock from time to time. A little bit metallic. Its really like Bar-B-Qued beer. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark brownish orange with a huge, foamy, slightly off-white head that mostly lasted. The aroma was smoke, beef jerky and Bar-B-Q suace. The flavor was a little bitter to start with some sweetness, acidity and salt, then it became sweeter with some sour comming out toward the end. The finish was average. There was a tindy bit of banana in the mostly smokey finish too. The medium body had lively carbonation and a metallic smokey finish.

Aroma is strongly smoky with a touch of salted meat. Brown color, thick head. Taste is smoky. Maybe too smoky and needs a little something else for balance.

haukur (1917) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 24, 2007
awesome smokey aroma, some yeast, fruits, tiny citrus (which maybe was of that stupid lemon slice). Murky and dirty looking (which is good!). Very meaty, but yet awesomly refreshing on this hot day in NYC. More like this please!!

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2007
Aroma: wow, smoked game, wheat (fresh), slightly fruity, leather & dried plums.
Appearance: cocoa with water... borwn, milky, however not opaque - but very foggy. Cream coloured head.
Flavour: sourish sweet, like sausage & sauerkraut - just kidding. Very, very, vague, grassy bitterness, quite nice, not very strong though.
Palate: very typica weissbier, creamy & refreshing, light & medium fizzy.

Tall dense head and intense smoky aroma. Nicely balanced flavor between the light wheat and the smoked malt. Unique.

thedm (6051) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated copper brown colored body. The aroma was malty and smoky. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of breads wheat and smoky. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Pours a hazy, dark brown with a large, white head. Aroma reminds me of a smoked meat, charred wood, and pepper. Body is a little disappointing, a bit thin and watery. Definitely can taste the smoke, it adds to the weizen character, rather than detracts from it. Not bad, although I like the style...

Skyview (5868) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Sampled at Cellars Wine & Spirits featuring joebrews favorites week #7 tasting. Pours a dark orange amber brew with a thin off-white head that quickly disappears clean and no lacing. Aroma of smokey hard wood, multi-grain malt, some bacon/pork character with a touch of nectarine. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with more flavors of smoked multi-grain malt, corn syrup, and a touch of pear. Finish is crisp, clean cut and slightly dry. A rauchbier but slightly on the light side.

bottle. Dark colour, persistent head, smoky nose. Not as smoky as the Mrzen and Urbock, but still there is a smoky bacground. Otherwise malty and quite yeasty. Very pleasant!
